Cloud services high on Microsoft India priority list

August 4, 2016

Microsoft, the information technology multinational, is raising its focus on security, high-end computing applications and developer community building services on the cloud.

Cloud computing is the term for using a network of remote servers, hosted on the internet, to store, manage and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer. Microsoft has a dominant market share in the Indian public cloud services market, which, says Gartner Inc, is projected to grow 30.4 per cent in 2016 to $1.26 billion (Rs 8,500 crore). With Amazon Web Services (AWS) launching two data centres last week, the market is set to become more competitive. SOURCE:
